in the arab world hitting home after an angry mob kills the u.s. ambassador to libya and three other americans. >> today many americans are asking, indeed, i asked myself. how could this happen in a country in a country we helped liberate in a city we helped save from destruction? this reflects just how complicated and at times how confounding the world can be, but we must be clear-eyed even in our grief. this was an attack by a small and savage group. not the people or government of libya. >> tensions are also strained right now with one of america's closest allies. anti-american fury is now spreading. we're following all the angle from around the globe. ian lee is on the ground in cairo, eswript, and sarah is in jerusalem. so two u.s. missions in two different countries attacked on the same day. we're talking about the 11th anniversary of the september 11th attacks. we want to take a closer look at the security information with someone who is actually experiencing this. nicolas burns has served in the foreign service for 27 years. he is also a former u.s. ambassador to nato. nick, thanks for

an angry mob goes on a rampage in benghazi, libya. firing machines guns and rocket propelled grenades. it was outraged over an film from by an american that insults the prophet muhammad. it killed the ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. stevens becomes the first ambassador killed in the line of duty in more than three decades. libya not the only scene of violence directed at americans. hours before equip -- egyptian rioters scaled the wall the embassy in cairo pulling down the american flag and replacing it with at black flag similar to the one used by al qaeda. president obama condemned all the violence moments ago. >> since our founding the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence, none. the world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. jon: so where does the story go from here. greg palkot is following for it live from london. greg? >> reporter: we're getting more and more information a
with the attacks against two u.s. diplomatic compounds overseas. first libya where militants staged a protest outside the u.s. consulate in ben za lee leading to clashes with security forces and the death of a security department officer. >>> the other powder keg is in cairo where several men managed to scale the walls of the u.s. embassy. take a look at this. they tore down all the american flags. ian lee is live from cairo this morning. i want to start with what has caused all this outrage. >> reporter: well, zoraida, it focuses around a film. and the film is very amateurish. it's a mishmash of clips. it is really incoherent, i have watched the clip, but it has a lot of things the muslims would find offensive about their prophet. so this is what sparked the clashes that we saw last night when thousands of people gathered outside the u.s. embassy where a handful of protesters actually breached the embassy compound, tore down the american flag like you just saw and ripped it apart. and these protesters are also calling for more protests against the u.s. embassy. a question we are wondering is
' approach to helping save libya, a country that he wanted to see free from the dictatorship of moammar gadhafi and killed in a city, benghazi, that he helped to save. i understand that there are 200 marines being sent to libya. what do we know about the tk orders? >> 200 marines who are already in the region, they are aboard one of those flat-top helicopter carriers in the iranian sea. they are called amphibious ready groups, and they are called f.a.s.t. teams prepositioned in all parts of the world, but particularly the hot middle east region as we see here. it should not take long to get those 200 marines who will be particularly equipped for the mission there in tripoli. this is not some kind of military operation or a strike of any kind. they will be armed with small arms and anti-riot gear and the like as opposed to going in for a military strike or operation. now in addition to that preparations are under way, too, to send additional f.a.s.t. teams, maybe not in the same numbers, but one to cairo and one to kabul. we know from past experience there has been violent and deadly sec

outposts around the world today after the u.s. ambassador to libya and three staffers were killed. now u.s. marines are speeding to benghazi where they will help secure the u.s. consulate where the attack occurred. jill dougherty joins us now. >> reporter: officials here at the state department are beginning to piece together the details, but this is what we know. we have been speaking to them all morning long. what they say is essentially you had three things going on. you had the basic demonstration by regular libyans, but then you had a very targeted attack on the attack in benghazi by these heavy heavily-armed militants. we understand there were a couple dozen of them. they were using rpgs. very serious attack. as they attack the consulate, it starts a fire. and that is where the story with the ambassador comes in. the ambassador, mr. stevens, had been in benghazi temporarily. he's normally in the capital tripoli. also shawn smith, 10-year veteran, was also there on a temporary assignment. they were inside that consulate. fire breaks out. there are now three people along with one sec

at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, in the last 24 hours, at times like this, frankly all of any president's public appearances have a higher than normal potential to make real news. so we are going to be monitoring the president's campaign speech, and if he makes comments about the protests in libya, we will bring that to you. the president just sat down with an interview with jose diaz balart, the host of telemundo on our sister network. excerpts of this interview are going to air on telemundo tomorrow morning and also ton their nightly news show jose diaz balart at 6:30 p.m. but what we've got right now is exclusive. with you're about to see here has not been seen anywhere until now. this is the president of the united states, giving his first extended response to questions about yesterday's events in benghazi, libya and in cairo, egypt. >> mr. president, for the first time since 1979, a sitting ambassador, christopher stevens, plus three other americans were killed in the line of duty. we send more than a billion dollars a year to egypt, tens of millions to libya after its li
